This might make some people happy, doing something that should have been doing long ago.

According to a New York Times report on Monday, then-26-year-old Capt. Paris Davis demonstrated heroism and bravery during a gunfight in Vietnam in June 1965, repeatedly putting himself in harm’s way to save wounded teammates.

Now the fight to get Davis recognized may be nearing the finish line. Acting Defense Secretary Christopher Miller has reportedly “personally ordered an expedited review of the lost nomination, to be completed by March.” That report will be passed to the Secretary of the Army, then to the Secretary of Defense, and ultimately placed on President Joe Biden’s desk.

Greetings and You are Most Welcome.

Heroism should be lauded, especially when saving or trying to save the lives of others. I hate it when it is late to be recognized.
